Donna Hoehman

Donna Hoehman is a librarian at Ada Washington Library for 3rd and 4th grade students. She loves to introduce books to students and watch as the books go flying off the shelf from the students' excitement to check them out. She also enjoys getting new books in and watching those books fly off the shelf as well. Some of the genres that she likes to read are mystery books, adventure books, realistic fiction books. But she will try just about anything. Her favorite is when the book has some kind of a mystery in the story. Her favorite author right now is Margaret Peterson Haddix. The most recent books she's read are the Horizon series. There are still three books to be published to finish the series, but she is hooked!
